Novel Corona-virus (COVID-19) Pandemic
As the overseer of this flock, God has made me responsible for your well being in every area of your life. After much prayer it is clear our method of gathering has to change temporarily. Effective immediately we have transitioned our services at WOHG to virtual online services. Our main service time will remain the same. We will continue to do Facebook live and other social media. In addition, we will be sharing short devotional videos throughout the weeks to come (times and days TBD).
The CDC recommendation is to practice social distancing and elevate cleanliness habits. So, this decision is not about what is the right or wrong think to do, it simply about doing what is safe and wise.
During the Passover, when the death angel came, God had everyone to abide in their own house until the death had passed over. They dwelled where the blood of the lambs had been applied. Likewise, we will avoid public places as much as we can and abide in our homes; the place were faith is strong, and is covered by the blood of Jesus. We will abide there until the virus threat has ceased. We are approaching Easter and this is the example the Lord dropped into my spirit and it sealed by my decision. This is a further testing of our faith and once again i ask you to follow my faith as i exercise the wisdom of God has given to me as your leader in this crisis.
We will give you more details as it becomes available about how we can support you in this crisis.
Acts 20:32 (KJV 1900) And now brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and give you an inheritance among all them, which are sanctified.
In His Service,
Apostle Samuel L. Phillips. Sr
